Remembering Gygax, Creator of Our “Demented and Sad, But Social” World

Gary Gygax

As everyone knows, Gygax passed away last week. We gave our own remembrance in the last Weekend Justice. Adam Rogers, senior editor from Wired, published a piece in the New York Times that makes the following argument:

Mr. Gygax co-created the game Dungeons & Dragons, and on that foundation of role-playing and polyhedral dice he constructed the social and intellectual structure of our world.

And I think he makes an excellent case. Read the whole thing here. Thanks to Zac for the headsup.
